YuLi's student wins the singles for the Under 15s Nationals and the girls double

Dear readers

Yuli's student, Bella YuTong Liu has made WA badminton history this week.  She won the Under 15s Nationals Singles and partnered Gerimay Nichols to win the girls doubles in a close 3 sets.

She is the first WA girl to win 2 individual medals in the nationals. To top it all, she was named sportsperson of the tournament. That is a great achievement.

And she has to thank her coach Yuli for all of that. I still remember Yuli chastising Bella after a bad performance at a BAWA tournament. Bella has learned so much from her coach and adoptive mum Yuli.

Here are some great photos.

Here are links to her games.
